Nearly a quarter of America’s population lives in rural areas. Rural residents are more likely to have chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, report fair or poor health, have less access to health care, are less likely to receive preventive services and face more difficulty getting to health services. Learn more about the health concerns of rural populations and how to better cover them.
